The all new Audi R8 hits the showroom this Friday. With luscious curves and a mean look it's sure to be the top in its class. Base price is set to $119,150. However, the S-Tronic version of the R8 boosts the price nearly 10k.
At a 4.4 second 60-mph speed the R8 has output of 430 horsepower and 316 pounds of torque. IT'S A MONSTER. Don't hold your breath because the V-10 will take you up to 525 Horse Power and holds a 5.2 liter engine that will give you a 60-mph time of 3.8 seconds FLAT. The V-10 pops the price up to a healthy $155,450.
Top shelf Audi R8 will cost somewhere in the range of 175k. It's deemed the R8 V-10 Plus. It receives a grade from Utah Car Cents of an "A-Plus". Pack 25 more horse power into the R8 to reach top shelf and you find yourself at 550 Horse Power and 398 lb-ft of torque!!!
